San Jose Native: What the locals drink!
- Name: An
- Occupation: Art Student with an Eye on the Time
- How long she’s lived in San Jose: More than 20 years!
- Favorite Local Eat: Mint Mojito Iced Coffee @ Philz Coffee
- Location: San Jose, CA (Two Philz Locations in SF too)
An has lived in San Jose since she was one years old, so that counts as a native CA’er for sure! She told me to go to Philz and order the Mint Mojito Iced Coffee and to get a large for a whopping $4.50! She says you will want a large if you order a small and it is only .50 cents more than the small. Philz even charges $3 for their drip cups of coffee and An claims it’s that good. They make a mocha type of coffee drink with a frothy top and add fresh mint. An discovered this drink in SF one afternoon and later found out they had a location in downtown San Jose where she now goes to get her fix while parked in a free, secret spot near the MLK Library. Thanks for the tip An!
